I have been impressed by the commitment and achievements of Jill Moss in raising awareness of the importance of MRSA, risk assessment and prevention in particular to practicing veterinary surgeons. I have been very fortunate in avoiding MRSA in my hospital through hygiene measures. I feel the work is an ongoing and needed programme, particularly when I hear of reports of MRSA in dogs who have had surgery for cruciate ligament ruptures. This was the circumstances which lead to the establishment of the Bella Moss Foundation following the death of Bella after cruciate surgery.

The elimination of all postoperative infections, including MRSA, should be the goal of all veterinary practitioners. The sharing of knowledge and experience that has been facilitated by the BMF is a very valuable resource for the good of animal welfare.’
